  1. Wash and dry all produce.
  2. Carefully peel and slice the potatoes into bite-sized pieces and dice the green onions.
  3. Build a strong fire and cut two large squares of foil.
  4. Place both the sheets of foil on the table to double-layer your packet and add the potatoes to the middle.
  5. Top with the butter, cheese, bacon bits, and green onion. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Secure the packets by folding up the sides and crimping the seams until there’s no openings.
  7. Spread out the coals to help the fire die down a bit and add the packets to the grill grate over your campfire.
